  1. The Japanese suppress figures on that, of course.
    It’s very high.

    As you make frantic excuses for a moribund economy.

  2. Then it’s lucky we haven’t been importing hundreds of thousands of extra poor people from all over the world for decades to drive down real wages for low-paid work, push up housing costs and given them benefits totaling bi££ions.

    We have?

    Oh dear.

    • Blame the other, right, anything but admit the real issues.

      Your myths on wages roll on, as you decry trade, benefits, etc.



  3. This should be old news but it is new and consistently ongoing. I have just left family members, who can’t afford food this week, raid my freezer.

  4. Frank Field is, of course, responsible for much of said hunger thanks to policies he has pushed over several decades.
